Original OSNews Interviews It's been a while since any of us have seen head or tail of the Open Graphics Project, but they haven't been just sitting around twiddling thumbs. Enjoy an in-depth interview between OSNews and Timothy Miller, the founder of the Open Graphics Project and the main man behind the drive that keeps it going, and Michael Dexter, Program Director at Linux Fund and a key player in Linux Fund's partnership with the OGP. Though it's been some time since there has been much public action, much of the work that the OGP has been putting into the OGD1 is finally coming to fruition.

Servers have no need of graphics, and joe public asks if it can run Crysis.

The problem is getting specs opened up, not rolling your own sub-par hardware for $$$$'s. All that time and money would have been better spent getting vendors to open up specs for hardware, or committing to release driver source under an *open* license so all OS's can benefit.

Now i could be wrong, since they've produced some other useful hardware bits, but I can't help but feel theres more useful LGPL designs at http://opencores.org/.
